Harassment is commonplace in VR. In past qualitative research, I studied sexual harassment of women. In my new project, in partnership with Pluto VR, I surveyed 600+ people who regularly use VR (Rift, Vive, PSVR, or Microsoft Windows Mixed Reality).

49% of women reported having experienced at least one instance of sexual harassment
30% of male respondents reported racist or homophobic comments
20% of males have experienced violent comments or threats

When Linden Lab flipped the switch on the new fashion market, it meant that all the old outfits were disabled, and could no longer be used. I had gotten so used to wearing a navy blazer and khaki pants outfit, and I kind of missed it.
